Trip to the post office

Tomorrow I need to hit the post office. I have a few things to send out. I framed Effie's butterflies and blossoms here is everything that i'm sending her way.

When I was searching for a necklace to make for Effie I found a pink ribbon to make for Eleni. So this will also be sent out tomorrow.

I also have a RAK (random act of kindness) well its kinda a rak... more like an ak LOL. To ship to a new stitching/bloggy friend tomorrow. Will show pictures as soon as it arrives.

I have taken a break from my "secret project" and started stitching on the needle book i'm making for Emily. It's coming along nicely. I am really loving the painted fabric. It can be a pain in the butt but when you want a certain color it sure helps out.

I will do this again in the future! If you try it out, make sure you have a sharp needle. The paint covers the holes and makes it a bit difficult at times.

Happy stitching.

a Finish?

Yes I finally! finished Butterflies and Blossoms.

The backstitching kicked me in the butt again. I don't understand how some backstitching I have no problem with and fly through it and others just drive me up the wall. Oh well... now onto a secret project I am hoping to have done by November. But i'm already flying through it so I might take a break here and there and work on something else too.

I stopped at Michael's the other day and they had grab bags for $2. I peeked in and saw a bunch of ribbons so I grabbed one. When I got home and looked through it I found some pretty ribbons. Just the spools have been ripped or torn off. But for $2 who's complaining?

Also here is my TUSAL jar. Not too much added this month. My left overs from the B&B and my new project.
